Jeff Gordon: Family

In 1992 Gorden met Brooke Sealey, a Miss Winston Cup model, at the Daytona Speedway after he won two qualifying races for the Daytona 500 that year. They were forced to date in secret owing to the sanctions against drivers dating the models. Sealey completed her tenure as Miss Winston Cup towards the end of the 1993 season.

The couple at that point opened up to the world about their relationship. A year to the day from their meeting, Gordon proposed to her. They were wed on November 26, 1994. Sealey eventually filed for divorce, claiming that Gordon had indulged in marital misconduct, explicitly referring to his relationship with another model named Deanna Merryman. Gordon and Sealey separated in June 2003.

As a settlement, Jeff reportedly paid Brooke over $100 million worth of cash, property, and assets. Brooke was given exclusive rights to the couple's oceanfront home, which is valued at $9 million. She will also receive alimony and has unlimited access to Jeff's private jets and boats for many years to come.

In 2004, he began dating Ingrid Vandebosch. They were engaged with June 2006 and married in a private function in Mexico on November 7, 2006. Vandebosch gave birth to their first child, a little girl named Ella Sofia in June 2007. In August 2010, she gave birth to the couple's second child, Leo Benjamin.
